Nyquist Capacity (referred to as Cn in further disucssion) is defined as 2*B*lg(#Signalling Levels or Symbols) bit/second. "lg" means log base 2.

So, we can compute the maximum bit rate for the medium as per Nyquist Capacity for each of the modulation choices, given the medium bandwidth Bmedia as 20KHz.

A. BPSK : It has two symbols or signalling levels.

Cn = 2 * 20000 * lg(2)
